We came across this great article on Huffington Post the other day giving some great pointers on what are some of the worst foods for your teeth – see the full article here.
Here’s their top 7 Enemies for Your Teeth:
Sugary Drinks – We all know by now how bad sugary drinks are for us, and not just our teeth. If you haven’t given them up yet, now’s a good day to start.
Alcohol – Did you know that alcohol can slow and even stop the natural production of saliva? That can lead to tooth and gum disease.
Citric/Acidic Food – These can eat at and wear away your tooth enamel over time – and you can’t get it back.
Starchy Foods – Starchy foods like potatoes chips and cheesey puffs can get stuck in and around your teeth – causing plaque build up.
Coffee – eek! We are on the fence for this one because coffee, well caffeinated coffee, can be good for teeth too – see our past article, Caffeinated Coffee May Reduce Your Risk of Oral Cancer.
